FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Still have questions? Feel free to call the Nespresso Club at 1-855-325-5781.
How are my capsules recycled? What happens with them?
Once collected, the capsules are shipped to a partner where they undergo a technological process, the first of its kind in Canada, which mechanically separates the coffee grounds from the aluminium. The aluminium is repurposed into various objects and the coffee grounds are transformed into a high-quality compost, used by farms, at no additional cost to citizens or municipalities.
How can I be sure that they are really recycled?
Nespresso works closely with service providers to ensure that capsules collected are recycled. Nespresso audits service providers on a monthly basis to monitor the volume of recycled capsules.
Why does Nespresso use aluminium when other materials are available?
Aluminium is the best material to protect the freshness, taste and quality of the Nespresso coffees, maintaining the high quality standard of the coffee from roasting to cup. It has a unique advantage of being infinitely recyclable and thanks to the robustness of aluminium, there is no need for additional packaging to protect the freshness and taste. Recycled aluminium is extremely versatile. An estimated 75% of all aluminium ever produced is still in use today, according to the European Aluminium Association.
Can I open the capsules and only recycle the aluminium part?
Yes, however, Nespresso continues to offer this recycling service as a part of our commitment to environmental sustainability.
